Shaffer said after learning the pool was still operating, he requested the rental contract March 30, but never received it.
Daniel Evans Jr., a Springfield resident who rented the facility for his family’s weekend party earlier this month where Emir Roblero, 10, nearly drowned, has told the News-Sun he is upset the business was still advertising a pool.
“I wouldn’t have thought to check into their background because I’d heard so many good things about the place,” said Evans, who rented the space that included the pool for Sunday.
Emir was rescued from the pool and flown to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, according to a Clark County Sheriff’s Office report.
After the near drowning, the business was still advertising the pool as part of the rental on its website. The website was not operating on Friday.
Even if the business were to apply for a license, the construction of the pool is also not appropriate for public swimming pool zoning, according to the health district records.
